North Dakota lawmakers consider school voucher bills for non-public school education

(Fargo, ND) -- Two bills under consideration at the Capitol will affect education if passed.  House Bill 1532 and Senate Bill 2369 would accommodate the use of public money for private and home schooling.  Both bills are considered voucher bills which supporters say would give parents more flexibility in making education decisions for their family.  The House bill would create a reimbursement plan for up to 30-percent of the cost of tuition to a private school.  The Senate bill would use property tax credits for families that choose non-public education for their children.
